Mourinho in tears as Roma reach Conference League Final

Jose Mourinho could not hold back tears at the final whistle as Roma booked their spot in the Conference League Final. ‘This for us is our Champions League.’

The Giallorossi beat Leicester City 1-0 on the night at the Stadio Olimpico with a Tammy Abraham header, 2-1 on aggregate.

It set up their Final against Feyenoord in Tirana on May 25, the first UEFA Final for the club since 1991.

Although he has won the Champions League and Europa League, the Special One was visibly emotional as the final whistle rang out.

“When you work in Rome, live in Rome and breathe Rome, you breathe this club because it is the real club of the city,” Mourinho told BT Sport.

“I felt from day one it is huge. But no victories and not many finals. The history is not related to the social dimension of the club.

“I am very emotional. Of course I have had bigger moments than this, but I am not feeling for myself, I am feeling for the people and my players. This for us, is our Champions League.”

  1. Anyone who’s doubts Mourinho, just watch how good Roma are next season!!when Jose is properly backed and supported he turns teams into champions!! 25 trophies speaks volumes!!

  2. He will absolutely be backed by Roma, we finally cleared the books this year, Getting rid of the likes of Pastore, Fazio, Jesus Santon etc etc players who were sucking us dry with their wages. Don’t be jelly Samy!

  3. Grande Mou! As an Inter fan, you just can’t not love him. As a hater, whatever Mou do, you just gonna find excuse to not praise him

  4. I love Mou, always have. But as some said.. It’s the conference league. Roma are a Europa league team and Mou is (some would say was) a Champions League level coach. None of it should be celebrated to this level :/

  5. Yes I agree its only the conference league a 3rd tier European cup but yet the only Serie A club to make it to a final of a European competition… so therefore it should be celebrated. Well done Roma, hopefully you guys can win it and bring a bit of respectability to Serie A. From an AC Milan fan.
